Gelish Berry Merry Holidays & MoYou London Festive 03

Good morning beauties! I have my first holiday mani of the season to share with you today. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I really was impressed with the wear of gel polish and that I was going to take a few steps towards the land of gel polish. Well I decided to jump into it and I bought a Gelish kit on Amazon. Good thing I bought it last month when it was only $93 because now it's $140. I'm loving it so far. I've used it twice and I'm so happy with how well it wears. There's definitely a learning curve for application compared to regular nail polish, but I know practice will make perfect.

For this holiday mani I used Gelish Berry Merry Holidays and stamped using MoYou London Festive 03 in Mundo de Unas 17. The studs are from Born Pretty Store. My co-worker who is really into gel polish gifted Berry Merry Holidays to me. Yay for more gel polish for my baby gel polish collection! My collection might stay a baby though as I'm now trying out Gelibility--a product that lets you turn any nail polish into gel polish. I'll share that with you guys another day, but I'll just say it's kind of amazing!

Wet N Wild Black Creme & MoYou London Fashionista 04

Happy Saturday friends! I can't believe we're already almost halfway through December. This month seems to be flying by. This is my last week of the semester for me and then I'll be on winter break! I can't wait. I'll also be off of work for 2 weeks, which is even better--more time to play with nails! 

Today I have a mani I did a couple of weeks ago while I was on Thanksgiving break. I used Wet N Wild Black Creme and stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 04 in Mundo de UnasWhite. The red is OPI Coca-Cola Red and the silver is OPI Liquid Sand It's Frosty Outside. I have to say this is an absolutely perfect shade of red. My husband even asked what color it is because he liked it so much and for him to ask is kind of amazeballs. See ya guys next time when I start sharing my holiday nails!

Nude & Black Damask Nails

Hi friends! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have a quick post for you today using one of my new MoYou London plates. I love that they keep coming out with new plates because I literally can't get enough. For this damask print mani I used Essie Cocktails & Coconuts and then stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 08 in Wet N Wild Black Creme. I didn't use my Mundo de Unas black stamping polish because I didn't want the black to cover the base too much. I really enjoyed wearing this palette cleanser for a few days. As much as I love colorful nail polishes, it feels nice to sport a nude mani every now and then.

Mustache Nails for Movember

Wow November went by fast! Before the month ends, I gotta share this manicure with you guys that I wore a few weeks back for Movember! I wasn't really sure what the real meaning of Movember was besides guys growing mustaches and nail addicts doing mustache manicures so I decided to look it up. In case any of you didn't know either, men grow out their mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues like prostate cancer.

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and stamped using MoYou London Hipster 07 in Mundo de Unas 2. The pink creme is OPI Suzi Has A Swede Tooth and the pink glitter is Zoya Pixie Dust Arabella.

I had all of last week off and did some swatching (haven't done that since last year in December!) and a lot of manis to share with you throughout December. Can't wait to share them with you all!
